Welcome to our new generation of Gpu Backplates. For so long we've been making these using screws as the only mounting mechanism option, but that is now changing.
From now on, we will have two fixing methods/mechanisms to choose from, screws and magnets, because ultimately it's you, the costumer, who should decide what fits you best, and not what we consider to be the best for you.
Like before, our backplates are uv printed. It's a high-end process in which the images/logos/text are printed directly on the surface of the backplate. This technique will give you the best quality possible that simply cannot be reproduced with inlaying or dual layered backplates.
Our backplates are fully customizable, so you can change any of the following parts:
- Keep or remove the hexagonal holes.
- The Msi Shield Color
- The "GTX 1060" text Color
- The Armor Logo Color
*** Please keep in mind that customization of the backplate will add a lead time of 1~2 business days ***
Msi GTX 1060 Armor 6G
Msi GTX 1060 Armor 6G OC
VERY IMPORTANT: There are 2 Pcb revisions of the Armor Cards. This Particular backplate is for the first pcb revision only (the larger pcb) it's NOT compatible with the "V1" or "V1OC" editions. Check your cardbox for reference. It should say 6G or 6GOC above the barcode. If you need help figuring out which model is the correct one for you, contact us. we will help you clear that out :)
By default our backplates are only compatible with the stock cooler. If you require a backplate compatible with a gpu waterblock, please add a note on the "Customization Notes" field above.
Backplates are made with 3mm Matt Black Plexiglass.
Package includes: Backplate and mouting mechanism (either screws and spacers or magnets, depending on your choice)
Keep in mind that improper installation of the magnetic version can lead to short-circuit of your card. So we recomend that you power down your system before installing the backplate. Make sure that the magnets are only touching the screws heads and not any card components before powering your system back up.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Will it prevent sag?
- No, it will not. For that specific purpose we have our gpu braces / supports.
Is it hard to assemble?
- No. If you chose magnets, you only have to power down your system, place the backplate over your card and power the system back up.
- If you chose screws, you will need to remove the card from your case and fix the backplate to the card. shouldn't take you more than 5~10 minutes to do it.
Will it be necessary to remove the Stock Cooler?
- With magnets - NO.
- With Screws - NO. But you will need to remove 7 of the stock Cooler Screws and replace them with longer ones we provide.
Does it include screws / magnets needed to assemble the backplate?
- Yes, it includes all the necessary mounting hardware to fix the backplate on your card, based on the option you chose (screws or magnets). The magnetic version is supplied with magnets pre-installed.
